You got a good deal, my friend. I usually buy Legos of that size the first time I see them (And when I have enough money), so I don't wait for sales.

I believe that the highest cost of the RG was $90.

Before I get on to business, I'm thinking of putting the RAW Review on hiatus. I'll let you decide its future, though.

I can either:

A) Review RAW on Monday nights/Tuesday afternoons

B) Wait until Friday and review both RAW and Smackdown
or
C) Quit reviewing shows completely

Now for the bad news... Over the past few months, I've had a bad feeling about a certain match taking place with two "wrestlers". Well, this bad feeling has become a nightmare. At No Mercy, facing off in an "I Quit" match, will be... Read it in the SmackDown! Spoilers

Actually, dustrho, I thought I was just in here talking to myself! Good to know at least one other person is reading! Might I suggest taping the shows? ;)

RAW Review

PROS:

- Goldberg vs. Jericho was an excellent match. They both put on one hell of a match, and it really looked good as well. Excellent.
- Snow and Coach were pretty good at commentary as the show went on. At the beginning, I felt like I was watching Heat.
- The Rock's segment tonight was hilarious. I'm going to go see "The Rundown" now. Please, Rock, come back to wrestling!
 - Christain vs. RVD was an okay match. It was great until the end, which I'll get into later. Hopefully, the Ladder Match next week will be as good or better than the RVD/Eddie Guerrero one from a year ago.
- The women’s tag match was pretty good. The women look good in the ring, and it was better than what we've seen recently. I dare WWE to show a Lita/Gail Kim match, just so we can see how much they botch moves.
- I enjoyed the Test/Steiner movie, yet I still prey that this feud will end. It has gone from April to September. That's way too long! The new "I own you" part looks to be entertaining, but nothing more than that.
- The Evolution/Cade/Jindrak/Maven 6 man tag was very weel done. I was expecting a total squash, but HHH actually sold some offense. Woah! Excellent job by everyone. This is where Triple H should stay for a while.
- S.*.*.*./Hurricane vs. La Resistance, was an OK match. Nothing really spectacular, but at least the tag division has more than 2 teams now.

CONS:

- Triple H is back and talking about how Goldberg will keep his title warm for him. The sad part about this is that it's true.
- Mark Henry (One half of Team Heatless) squashing Tommy Dreamer was just pointless. Henry no sold almost everything, and then won with his "Fata** Slam" (Which recieved no response from the crowd). I did laugh at Teddy Long's President speech, though.
- The belt finish of the IC Title match was stupid. Must every champion DQ themselves by hitting the challenger with the belt?
- Commentators? Wrestling? AGAIN!?!? END THIS FEUD!!!!!

All in all, RAW was a very great show, much better than what we've seen the past several weeks. Everything was great, except for the Mark Henry match. This show gets an A-. HHH losing the title was exactly what RAW needed to improve.

Unforgiven Results

Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von) def. La Resistance and Rob Conway in a Tables match to win the World Tag Team titles (They made it a Tag Title match on Heat)

Test def. Scott Steiner after Stacy Keibler accidentally hit Steiner with a chair

Randy Orton def. Shawn Michaels after interference from Ric Flair

Lita and Trish Stratus def. Molly Holly and Gail Kim

Kane def. Shane McMahon after Shane fell off the titantron and through the stage

Christian def. Chris Jericho and Rob Van Dam after Christian hit RVD with the belt, retaining the Intercontinental Title

Coach and Al Snow def. JR and Jerry Lawler after interference from Jericho

Goldberg def. Triple H after a Jackhammer to win the World Heavywieght Championship

MY THOUGHTS: YES! YES! NEW CHAMPION! NEW CHAMPION! Seriously, the show was mediocre at best. All matches were watchable except for the Commentators Tag Match. They had better keep JR and King at the announcer's booth, or RAW ratings will just slipped. HHH FINALLY lost the title, and there can finally be new feuds! I wonder who Goldberg's first opponent will be? I give the show a B-.

BTW, am I the only one that senses a Jericho/Austin match coming up soon?

I'll wait for detailed pics before I post my final thoughts, but it does look like the Jabba Glob from a few years ago.

Have to agree with Hawaii. I went this past June, and it was a great trip. I only stayed at Maui and Oahu, but they were both equally spectacular.

I also enjoyed my visit to Washington D.C. in June 2001.

I never owned an NES, but I did play some of the rereleased games on the Super Nintendo. :) I know that my aunt has an NES lying around somewhere. Maybe I'll have to look for it the next time I go to her house...

BTW, does anybody else know that Nintendo is rereleasing Mario Brothers 3 for Game Boy Advance this fall? It will be called "Super Mario Brothers 3: Super Mario Advance 4". 8)

I only get bad allergies the week before Christmas, and they usually last about two or three weeks, so I start off the new year sneezing. :'(

Maybe it's just a paint error? If you don't want it, I'll be happy to give it a good home. ;D :P

Mods, if you could merge this thread with the other threads (Cloud City, Dagobah, and the Millenium Falcon/UCS Snowspeeder threads).

Tim from FBTB reports:

While I'm waiting on details about the January 2004 assortment, I can tell you this; if you scroll down the left hand column and check out your most wanted sets listing from our last survey, you may go ahead and cross one of those off the list . . .

Which means we are getting one of the following:

1. Sandcrawler
2. Jabba's Sail Barge
3. UCS Mil. Falcon
4. Mos Eisley Cantina
5. Tauntaun Patrol

COOL! :o ;D

Hey, why not make me the Official JD Lego guy? ;) :P

I'm totally boring when it comes to my Hot Dog consumption...  Either just plain ol' ketchup, or a good chili-cheese dog.  None of the other funky stuff though!   :P

Same here! :)

RAW Review:

PROS:

- Opening segment was very good.
- Jericho vs. RVD was a good match for the time it was given. The Triple Threat at Unforgivencould be a MOTY canditate, IMO.
- The Goldberg Hype segments were good, though I think they could've shown more of his WCW past, but this is WWE we're talking about. :-X
- Women's match was decent, and Lita is back. She should leave the Twist of Fate to Matt Hardy, though.
- The HBK/Orton segment was okay. It might be one of the best matches on the card. Why was Maven involved? Setting up a possible heel turn?

CONS:

- The Triple H Ego Trip, I mean "Party" was dull and boring. You could tell that the crowd hated it. Once again, HHH destroys the credibility of a wrestler by making fun of him and his past. Yawn. I hope he has to take a long vacation to heal his groin.
- Moolah vs. Victoria was pointless. The RKO afterwards was so predictable. WWE, PLEASE stop the shock factor. It doesn't work like it did in 1998! >:(
- Spike Dudley vs. Rob Conway was a dull squash match. Their feud is really boring, and I just can't wait for it to end.
- Speaking of never ending feuds, let's hope that the other boring feud (Steiner vs. Test) ends at Unforgiven. The match between Test and Val Venis was only booked to further the feud. I bet that Stacy swerves us and turns on Steiner this Sunday.
- Contract signing was a waste of time. We all know that Shane will get killed at Unforgiven.
- The commentator feud is just really gay. Please let it end!

I thought that RAW was decent this week, but it was still pretty bad. I give it a C+ this week. I hope that the product picks up after Unforgiven (when HHH FINALLY loses the belt).
